The 'Rolex gang' is the description for members of an Italian organised criminal group who make short visits to cities such as Palma with the intention of stealing valuable watches. The way of operation is always the same. The gang acts in pairs. One grabs a watch from a target's wrist, while the other waits on a motorcycle that has been hired under someone else's name. The crime committed, and they return to Italy. Unless they are caught.
